I actually don't see myself

as being special,

because I'm not.

Not really.

These are green peppers.

Sage.

So I try not to think about it and

I just go about living my life.

Look at this one.

See that? It's a nice one.

It's not something I'm ashamed

of or anything like that.

But it's not something

I'm proud of, either.

Because I had

nothing to do with it.

You don't get to choose

when you're born.

And as you can see here,

the waxing gibbous

will be taking us

toward the weekend.

And then on Saturday,

we'll have a full moon,

and that's a perigee

for this orbit.

So just keep that in mind as

you're planning your weekend.

Family dinners may be a little

more quarrelsome than usual,

especially if you've got some

menstruating teenagers around the table.

Andrew's been working for us

for almost three years now.

And I've really

come to value him.

-Hi, Andrew. Good morning.

-Good morning. Heading out?

Because he's good

at his job. It's that simple.

The lamp in my bedroom

needs a bulb.

-And the fact is...

-Okay, yeah, I can replace it.

a lot of people we know can't

find men to do the job anymore.

So they're having

to hire women,

which is obviously

a lot more expensive.

-Good morning.

-Good morning!

Maybe it's because he is so

much younger than the other men

we've had working for us,

but I do worry about the impact

his presence has on our kids.

Really, you got a fever?

It's not that I'm worried that he's

corrupting them or anything like that.

It's more that having

a man like him around

might make them

yearn for something

they can't have...

Shouldn't have.

I like the kids being exposed

to a man like Andrew.

Someone who's more in his

prime, more vital and active.

I think you're

gonna be late for school

and you should go get ready.

What are you doing?

I mean, I know it's not

a very popular thing to say,

but I think it's

enriching their lives.

Nine minutes.

All our lives.

Yeah, I suppose from a

historical point of view,

there's some

truth to that.

Seventy-five years

from now,

our daughters

will be able to give

their daughters

and granddaughters

a firsthand account

of what men were really like.

Yeah, I think

that's important.

It's nature's way.

Praise nature.

My name is Andrew Myers.

I am 37 years old, and I'm the

youngest man in the world.

NO MEN BEYOND THIS POIN In 1953 I was a young priest,

just out of the seminary.

I was blessed

with the good fortune

of being assigned

to the Vatican

to work for an order known as the

Congregation of the Causes for Saints.

It was our responsibility

to investigate events

that were so extraordinary that they

could be deemed a divine miracle.

Every year,

there were many claims made.

Stigmatas, apparitions

of the Virgin Mary,

the healing of

deadly medical conditions

and, of course, virgin births.

In a typical year,

there would be

no more than

three or four reports

of virgin births that

warranted any attention.

But in 1953, there were

67 virgin birth claims.

You have to remember

that fatherless pregnancies

first began more

than half a century ago.

This is back when Abrahamic

religions dominated the world,

and Christianity, which had nearly two

billion worshippers at that time,

regarded virgin birth as one

of its most sacred tenets.

Christians believe

that a virgin named Mary

gave birth to their Holy

Prophet, Jesus Christ,

and that he was

fathered by their God.

So you can see why

the Church was so concerned

about the sudden profusion

of virgin birth claims.

Because if they were true, and the
